Apply now to attend NCCAT’s February charter connections seminar

By January 10, 2023 News

Join an upcoming seminar for charter teachers from the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching (NCCAT)! The seminar takes place the week of February 13 in Ocracoke, and is led by Deborah Brown, an experienced and award-winning charter leader. A former Charter School Teacher of the Year, Deborah is the current middle school director at The Exploris School.

Here’s NCCAT’s write-up for the Charter School Connections Seminar:

How can charter school teachers build networks of support for schools, staff, and students? With each charter school operating as an independent LEA, how do we form communities with other charter school educators to share best practices and increase community support? Explore how teachers can better advocate for their specific school and charters in general and how to develop your own leadership style to help support school initiatives. Learn best practices in connecting students to digital learning and student leadership development through exploring personalized, project-based and flipped learning. Discuss ways to model these practices in your schools. Using a “make and take” model, participants will have time to develop a communication or networking plan, digital lessons, and project-based modules to share with your school.
